Twenty years ago, French musical Notre Dame de Paris premiered at the Palais de Congrès in 1998, in Paris. Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel of the same name, the musical has since been performed in 23 countries, translated into 9 languages and has had successful runs worldwide. Now, the acclaimed musical returns to the West End for a strictly limited seven performances.
Performed in its original French, with English surtitles, the well-known tale is set in Paris in 1482 and follows Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell ringer of Notre Dame, and his unrequited love for Esmerelda, a gypsy living a life of freedom in the city. The tragic story of these two outsiders has since been adapted and retold in many forms since the original novel was published, including the 1996 Disney film.
